New book chapter on interactions of cholesterol and pentameric ligand-gated ion channels

Our new book chapter (in a great volume edited by Irena Levitan at the University of Illinois at Chicago) reviews our simulations of cholesterol and other sterols interacting with pLGICs. It also includes a brief teaser of Liam’s new coarse-grained simulations involving nAChRs in phase-separated quasi-neuronal membranes, and offers some simulation-inspired ideas for experiments with straightforward interpretations.
